This sock puppet spider craft is so much fun to make and to play with when complete! We like to use this puppet when we sing "itsy bitsy spider" but have found that it is also the perfect Halloween craft for a preschooler. Our daughter loves to make it crawl around the house and it's a great way to encourage her to use her imagination. It's also an easy sock puppet to manipulate because it works better if you close your hand into a fist and bouce it around than if you work on opening and closing your hand to make a puppet talk. It is a great preschool or toddler craft for Halloween or for anytime!
